When Lunie Pitts is laid off from her job at the Mosby Gap Building Department, she decides to clean her deceased Mother's house (Mother was a hoarder) and write a novel in 30 days as part of a national contest. However, problems begin when her brother, Dayton, returns from his job out West, and moves in with all his stuff (he's also a hoarder). Her life spins out of control when his gift of a mechanical stuffed moose with amazing properties arrives and becomes stuck in her front doorway, and "friends" he has made through Facebook also show up. Lunie mistakenly seeks professional help online through the dubious Dr. Manngo, who offers odd but comforting advice on her various issues--from the refrigerator Taste, her mother's house, her brother, and a neighbor's new reality TV cooking show. Despite her many distractions and increasing loss of control, Lunie continues working on her novel, and discovers some surprises at the door aren't bad ones.
